'Angels have no philosophy but love.' ~Terri Guillemets
Yesterday (Oct 2nd) was the feast day of our guardian angel. From an early age we have been taught that we have a guardian angel. But before we were even taught we just knew. Today people of all ages have a beautiful and touching belief in angels. We sense that there is someone special watching over us. This is not just a childhood fantasy, it is something real and something that gives us great comfort as we journey through life.
Like many things we take our Guardian Angel for granted. We often forget that they are there as our friend. The complexities of life can take over our lives but they are always there. Our scriptures have many references to angels. They are real, active and can best be described as God's protective love very near and close to us. Today is their feast day but especially of your guardian angel. A fitting prayer today and indeed every day might be:
"O Angel of God, my guardian dear, to whom God's love commits me here. Ever this day, be at my side, to light and guard, to rule and guide. Amen"
